Products: Gossamer Forum: Development, Plugins and Globals: adding columns to user profile (database and templates): Edit Log

Here is the list of edits for this post
adding columns to user profile (database and templates)
Hi,

I was wondering if someone could provide a starting point for this change I would like to make on the User Profile. I basically want to add a few more fields to the user's profile, ie: add in "my pet's name", "where i was born", etc.

I've already updated the table with new columns via the Admin UI >> Tools >> User

1. Is there a way to automatically regenerate the templates/default/user_profile_basic.html file?

2. Do I have to modify the GForum::User package ? or based on the fields coming in thru the form, it will be updated?

I guess I'm gonna manually edit the template file thru the Admin UI and go from there. But just wanted to know if I was on the right track or whether there was a better way to do this.

Thanks, ws
